  • Speaker (~15min): Dr. Mike Morrow "When Stars End with a Bang: Gravity, Supernovae, and Chandrasekhar"
    The difference between core-collapse supernovae (the end stage of massive stars) and type Ia supernovae (when White Dwarfs absorb enough matter from a binary partner to reach the Chandrasekhar limit). I will also talk about how both of these violent ends are really a result of gravitational collapse.
